Resogun: Heroes (PlayStation 4)

Holding out for a hero

It’s a statement that’s rapidly approaching cliché territory, but Housemarque’s cylindrical shooter Resogun is still the PlayStation 4’s best game. That’s not a slight against the software library that Sony’s next-gen system has amassed over the past six months or so – although we’re sure that many would like...

Movie media server

Despite the promise of future support from platform holder Sony, the PlayStation 4 is currently very poor when it comes to local media playback.
